Western Digital has upped the capacity of its media streaming internal hard drives to up to 3 TB, though the bigger sizes may not play nice with PCs.

The 3.5 inch AV-GP hard drives are aimed at the audio-visual market with a keen eye for storage space-intensive applications.

The AV-specific hard drives run fast and efficiently during high temperatures from continuous usage like with content streaming.

High read speeds and the reliability of 24X7 for optimal power consumption makes these drives run smooth while capturing up to 12 HD video streams simultaneously without overworking.

After 2.19 TB of storage, some operating systems like Windows XP stop supporting hard drives. 32-bit version of Vista and Windows 7 detect these larger drives as ‘secondary drives.’ In any case, it’d be a clever to check out WD’s white paper on the topic to see whether the extra-large drives are compatible with your PC or other AV devices.

The 2.5 TB version (WD25EURS) comes in at $199, while the 3 TB (WD30EURS) runs at $219.
